Paper Abstract

The flight microchannel plate detectors to be used in the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph, a fourth generation instrument for the Hubble Space Telescope, have been calibrated in the laboratory before being integrated into the spectrograph. This paper presents additional findings following a second scrub that became necessary when a fault was found with the quantum efficiency enhancement grid.
